SITE NEWS: FOA 2011 and KUBIAK 2011

There have been a number of questions, both on the site and on Twitter, about when people are going to see Football Outsiders Almanac 2011. Obviously, the lockout has thrown a wrench in the works. We're working on things as much as we can, but we decided early on that we wanted projections and essays that were fully up-to-date. That meant waiting for free agency, and that meant waiting for the end of the lockout.

So, when can you expect the book and the KUBIAK fantasy projections? Here's a rough estimate:

  • 2011 KUBIAK fantasy football projections should be available roughly two weeks after free agency begins.
  • Football Outsiders Almanac 2011 should be available roughly one month after free agency begins.
  • FO College Football Almanac 2011 will be available in early July. If it comes out before KUBIAK and FOA 2011, we will put the "package deals" on sale and those people who buy the PDF version of FOA will be able to download the college portions of the book before the rest of the book is finished.

If all the optimistic news reports are correct, and the lockout is going to end in early July, that would put KUBIAK out around July 24 with FOA 2011 coming out around August 15. It will be later than usual, but unlike those fantasy magazines you buy off the newstands, FOA 2011 will know who is playing quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

If all the optimistic news reports are not correct, we will be sad.

Any thoughts as to whether or not FOA 2011 will be available in other electronic formats (.mobi or .epub)?

I firmly believe that Aaron & the crew already know who will be playing quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals. They just don't want to show off during the lockout.

aaron, any new perspectives on the timing for kubiak? still thinking two weeks of FA? or will there be any interim cuts/views you can provide sooner?

obviously alot is being crammed into a very tight timeframe, but most of our draft prep is super-condensed with work starting now for drafts that take place anytime over the next 5 or so weeks.

any thoughts would be great. tks again for a great product.
